WEBINAR (RECORDING): Hydrostatic Test Guidelines for Integrity Management

Tue, October 16, 2018

Runtime: 78 minutes - click the registration buttom below to view a recording of the webinar.

DATE: Tuesday, October 16, 2018
TIME: 11:00 a.m ET

HOST: Mr. David Warman, Enterprise Products
PRESENTER: Mr. Ben Mittelstadt, Dynamic Risk Assessment Systems, Inc.
MODERATOR: Mr. John Lynk, Pipeline Reseach Council International

As a result of PRCI project IM-3E, a comprehensive guide was developed for the use of hydrostatic testing as an integrity management tool. While other industry research has focused on hydrostatic testing, none focused on the specific application of hydrostatic testing as a pipeline assessment tool to support integrity management plan requirements and objectives.

The scope of this work was to develop a document that provides the necessary guidance to pipeline operators on the appropriate use of hydrostatic testing within the integrity and risk management process.

The focus of this study was on hydrostatic test program decision processes and development; the selection of hydrostatic testing as an appropriate pipe-line assessment tool; the subsequent technical design of a hydrostatic test program and the necessary considerations in order to achieve IMP requirements and objectives.

Consideration was given to the essentials of known or assumed pipe material properties; threat type and defect populations; operating and failure history; potential risks; unintended or detrimental effects and the importance of a clear understanding of objectives, as key elements within a hydrostatic test program design process.

Expected Benefits/Learning Outcomes:

  • The use of hydrostatic testing as an appropriate pipeline assessment tool;
  • the subsequent technical design of a hydrostatic test program;
  • and the necessary considerations in order to achieve IMP requirements and objectives

Who Should Attend?

  • Integrity Managers and Specialists
  • Integrity Engineers

Project Final Report: PR-430-153706-R01 Hydrostatic Test Guidelines for Integrity Management

NOTE: This research and resulting report does not attempt to provide practical guidance for the on-site implementation of a hydrostatic testing program. The main focus of this work is related to carbon steel mainline piping; however, select hydrostatic principles contained with the final report may also be applicable to other forms of transmission and facility piping.

Keywords: integrity management; integrity management program; hydrostatic testing; pipeline assessment; pipeline inspection
